REDDING, Calif. - A 62-year-old woman gave birth Friday to a healthy 6-pound, 9-ounce baby boy, becoming one of the oldest women in the world to successfully bear a child.

Janise Wulf gave birth to her 12th child. She is also a grandmother of 20 and a great-grandmother of three.

Family members said the delivery went smoothly, despite earlier concerns about the mother's health. Wulf, a diabetic, experienced swelling and higher blood pressure earlier this week, prompting doctors to perform the Caesarean section a week early.

Wulf and her third husband, Scott, 48, named the red-haired boy Adam Charles Wulf. He follows just 3 1/2 years behind his older brother, Ian.

"I hate to raise one alone, without a sibling," said Wulf, who was impregnated both times through in vitro fertilization.

The oldest woman on record to give birth is a 66-year-old Adriana Iliescu of Romania, who had a Caesarean section Jan. 15, 2005.

The Guinness Book of World Records also lists two 63-year-old women who have given birth: Rosanna Della Corte of Italy in 1994 and Acheli Keh of California in 1996. News reports, however, list Della Corte's age at 62 when she gave birth

Whatever. They let homos adopt kids too. Seems they are no longer "precious" if they can be used as a variable in some mindless social experiment.

The husband is the same age as me, and he's poking a 62-year-old.

Ugh.

How incredibly selfish and immoral.

Here's a pic of the new mom, pretty scary looks every day of 62 years old Even scarier that she'll be 80 when the kid graduates High school.

Dear God in heaven, WHY???

Why would any sane person want to be the mother of an infant when they are 62? The mother of a two year old when they are 64? The mother of a teenager when they are 76??

My mother passed away at 64, I was 35 and it was devastating to me. I can only imagine how young her kids will be when she dies.

She and her husband obviously love children so I say good for them. 62 isn't that old these days.

I wonder if she used her Medicare insurance to pay for this all this?

Good thing I'm not breast feeding off of that one!

yeah my Psychology teacher was talking about her.. he said something about by the time the kids are in college she'll be 80 and at least 50% (i think that was the number, i was only 50% listening anyway :) ) of people without fail fall into dementia at that point. I'm not exactly sure what dementia is, but it doesn't sound real responsible letting people raise kids at that age if that's a concern. :(

If you have great-grandkids by 62, your whole family tree needs to stop fucking

The kid doesn't have to be on the mom's lap to be breast fed..


Think floor level.

Jesus christ, hopefully the woman dies soon so the kid can have a decent family.

You gotta be nuts having kids when your in your 60s.

"It's all about me, me, me."


Psychos having kids.
What a waste of resources.
